"The Godfather" 44th Anniversary

Marlon Brando as the Godfather On the 44th anniversary of The Godfather, we present the case that Francis Ford Coppola set Italian Americans back by a hundred years by resurrecting the crude, amoral stereotypes first created by turn-of-the-century "yellow" journalism. The film criminalized the history of the Italian American immigrant experience and reaffirmed the belief that criminal behavior is an essential aspect of Italian culture. Worst of all, it created a billion-dollar spin-off industry which has spread to every conceivable media outlet in America---television, books, theatre, advertising, cable, video games and even CHILDRENS' animated films like "Shark Tale" and "Zootopia."
